Tony Parker to the Knicks? Just ask his wife…

Happy couple Eva Longoria and husband Tony Parker enjoy the USA vs France basketball game in NYC, NY on August 15, 2010 where they watched Hollywood husband Lamar Odom play and were joined in the seats by director Spike Lee. Fame Pictures, Inc

Per the NY Post

The couple was at sold-out Red Bull Arena last night in Harrison, N.J., to watch their friend Thierry Henry and the Red Bulls lose 1-0 to the L.A. Galaxy.

Asked if Parker’s presence meant he was coming to New York, she responded, “No, we’re just here watching [Henry].”

Asked if her husband wanted to come to New York, she quickly flashed a smile, nodded her head and said, “Yes.”

The Knicks’ dream would be to acquire Carmelo Anthony and Chris Paul, but unless Paul forces a trade, the earliest he could sign outright would be the Summer of 2012. Parker wouldn’t be a bad backup plan if it looks like Paul is going to stay put in New Orleans.

Parker will be 29 next summer and has had trouble staying healthy. He has missed 49 games over the last three seasons. He definitely has the speed to run D’Antoni’s system, though I don’t know if he has the vision. He has never averaged more than seven assists per game, and isn’t the traditional pass-first point guard.

However, if he’s the third wheel behind Melo and Amare, I’m sure he would adjust. It’s just that Stoudemire is so good on the pick-and-roll and Parker isn’t the greatest passer in those situations.

Parker just has one year left on his contract and will be a free agent next summer.
